As part of Bidoof Day, games like Pokemon GO honored the character. Between June 25, 2021 and July 1, 2021, special events appeared there. People could catch the character with moves it didn’t normally learn. Shiny Bidoofs showed up. You could also get themed stickers from Poke Stops and Catch XP bonuses.
